All three of these arcades connect on the inside, so really, it’s one big arcade by the same owner. I featured all three in the same video. The arcades have a decent balance of video games and redemption-based machines. They have invested in some more expensive newer games: Cruisin’ Blast while still maintaining some great classics like Final Furlong! Would be nice to see a dance machine in here! Can’t complain and certainly better than the redemption fests we see in most places these days. Would visit again!

Many of the arcades in the UK (Mainly seaside arcades) are called Amusement Arcades. They are typically packed with redemption-based machines with very few video games (As video games simply do not make money). I have placed the word “Amusements” in the title for these types of places as they are not true Video Game Arcades, but deserve some sort of mention. As gambling is legal in the UK, they tend to include fruit machines (aka slot machines) and various other things money-making games, so video games really take a back seat in places like these. They also really hate filming, I’m not sure why because it’s free advertising, unless dodgy things are taking place lol
An amusement arcade (often referred to as “video arcade” or simply “arcade”) is a venue where people play arcade games such as video games, pinball machines, electro-mechanical games, redemption games, merchandisers (such as claw cranes), or coin-operated billiards or air hockey tables. In some countries, some types of arcades are also legally permitted to provide gambling machines such as slot machines or pachinko machines. Games are usually housed in cabinets. The term used for ancestors of these venues in the beginning of the 20th century was penny arcades.Video games were introduced in amusement arcades in the late 1970s and were most popular during the golden age of arcade video games, the early 1980s. Arcades became popular with children and particularly adolescents, which led parents to be concerned that video game playing might cause them to skip school.
